protection against earthquakes in particular in areas
where such risks are high.
As soon as an earthquake emerges, the fast moving
primary seismic wave is detected and analysed on the fly
to generate and transmit a notification either directly or
via a data centre (improved reliability using several
stations) to a target vulnerable area before the arrival of
the slower moving destructive seismic waves to that area.
Most beneficial warning is achieved for areas within 20 to
100 km distance from the source of the earthquake.
The notification can be used for various actions such as
9
issuing an audio/visual emergency signal
9
pushing alerts to mobile devices
9
feeding data in decision making systems
9
activating automated emergency reaction systems
9
notifying emergency organisations and personnel
and many more.
